The Field Naturalists Club of Victoria (FNCV) was established in 1880 and is Victoria's oldest field naturalists club. The purpose of the formation of the FNCV was to gain an understanding of our natural world, not by mere study of what others have written, but by going out into the natural environment and examining it for ourselves. The reason for the FNCV's long existence is because the need to understand our ever changing environment has always been there. Early club members worked successfully for the reservation of Wilsons Promontory as a national park. The FNCV continues to thrive to this day. It is a very active club with close to 1000 members. There are nine special interest groups (SIGs), and a calendar of diverse events is devoted to the study of natural history.

    Tentative ID - would need to see high-res close-up of protoconch sculpture to be more confident.

    This looks a lot like an undescribed charopid there are a few records of from far eastern Vic (Charopidae sp "Tomato Creek" in my records) but would need to see a high-res close-up of the protoconch to be sure.

    Last shot shows the distinctive bare, glossy area on the thoracic pleura behind the foreleg insertion which occurs in both S. discolor and S. norrisi, but in the latter the abdomen ground colour is black.

    Probably, a worn R. lineata (note elytral ridge, and remnants of white maculation)
